The place is small and very cosy. So réserve in advance if you want to be sure of a table. There is a great fun atmosphere in the restaurant. You have an open wood oven burning which provides a different kind of warmth and charm than you experience in other places. The owners are great, friendly and ready to do... More

I first went here 16 years ago and love it. Cosy and warm but also with fantastic food. The Rossini is fantastic and the four gras is delicious. The home made deserts are good with the tiramisu the best. It's different and crunchy but fantastic. Love it. Just what you need after a day skiing.

This resturant is one of the best in Contamines and well worth the short walk. The food is excellent with meats .seafood and all local specialities . Service is pleasant and helpfull. The room is a mixture of chic and charm with the pizza oven giving a warm glow that envelopes the whole room

A whole new look for L'air du temps and a slightly different menu. We went for our first night pizza - drinks and some tapanade and bread arrived whilst we chose. The Pizzas were thicker and not brilliant, but we were offered a take home for what we diid not eat, which was great. The side salad was delicious, not... More

We had a lovely meal here last year, but things have taken a decided downturn. I think it may be under new management? A perfect pizza last year, is now a rather soggy, doughy mass. Other food was good, with very large portions - I would go for one course only - but not at the same standard as previously.... More

We had a super meal here - lovely unpretentious atmosphere, great value and one of the best homemade pizzas I have ever eaten. Throughly recommended!

Just friendly, good fun and great for big parties. Yann, the patron, is always good company. Don't expect haute cuisine, but do expect honest, good value food. The woodfired pizza oven is always in use, and turns out a mean range of dishes. Ask for his apple tarte cooked in the oven as a perfect end to the meal. Delicious!

I've been to this restaurant for 4 times at least, and it's still great value for money. It serves traditional Savoie cuisine in a very intimate hall, with few tables. Food: quality of food is excellent, portions are very generous (and if you want some more, you just ask and they'll bring it!). You can have more traditional alpine dishes... More

Food was very good, we tried lots of the local dishes. It was a freezing night and the place was slightly on the cold side but that did not deter us from enjoyed an excellent night with great beer and wine. The owner offered us a homemade dessert FOC and digestifs FOC at the end of the evening. Nice end... More

We booked in advance from England for New Year's Eve and at the time there was no mention of the menu being any different. We arrived for our booking with our two children and looked at the menu that was placed in front of us which made us absolutely panic as the set menu, even for children, was 75 euros... More
